Yesterday when I was cleaning my field stripped Springfield A-1 Loaded, I accidentally pulled the trigger causing the hammer to fall onto the frame. I have read that this is not a good thing for the frame. I did not observe any peening.
Did I start a potential issue for my Springer?

Wait till you do it on a LWT frame. Pucker factor of about 9.

Consider yourself appropriately scolded. :whistling: Now don't ever do it again. :supergrin:

I don't think you did any damage, just don't make it a habit and you'll be fine.

Springer? Jerry Springer? Oh, Springfield. For a second thought I was in the wrong Forum. :rofl:

Yes. You're Springer is now completely defunk, and will likely now commit random acts of violence, eventually hanging with a group of assault weapons until it is eventually destroyed.

If you'll kindly mail it to me, I will perform the exorcism, disassemble its parts and scatter them to the four corners of the earth for you, free of charge. :supergrin:

Seriously, I've had that happen on my Para "project" gun. No ill has befallen yet.

Thanks for the responses so far. Sounds like a common experience to have this happen at least once. I had that "Springer" since about 2004 and this is the first time and hopefully the last time I ever will do this.
